    Default What are you doing to/for your hair right now?

    I'm having a bout of insomnia and decided to take advantage of the awake time by:

    -infusing ACV with chamomile
    -steeping catnip tea for the week

    My hair is lightly oiled and in loosely floating around in its happy sleep cap.

    Out of interest, what are the rest of you doing to/for your hair right now?

    Sitting on my hands while it air dries. I used to think that if I didn't comb it when it was wet it dried weird and messy. I've recently realized that messiness is actually wave, and I'm trying to learn to respect that. It's hard, considering I used to watch tv and comb it over and over to make it dry faster.

    I've got my hair in braid, soaking in EVCO and it is gently placed inside my silk sleeping cap. I'm pretty sure my hair loves me right now

    I'm taking a few deep breaths and keeping the stress down.

    Laying on a satiny pillow after oiling my hair with Shea Moisture Reconstructive Elixir (last night I oiled it with coconut oil).

    I'm waiting for my hair to air-dry. Today was a benign neglect day, so i just washed it with a shampoo ant didn't do anything extra for it. I guess you can call it clarifying....?

    Ugh, I know what you mean MadameV. I fought so hard against what my hair was naturally trying to do when it dried, but all along it was actually very cute curls and waves. I feel like the curls look terrible with my current short style, but I cant wait to see them longer.

    Anyways, as far as my hair, all Im doing for it is a moroccan argan oil treatment once a week. That doesnt include avoiding things that are damaging lol.

    I sympathize. I have discovered I am wavier than I realized since I joined the LHC. I always thought my hair was messy unless I put it up after it dried. In reality, my hair was objecting to me messing with its wave. I'm being kinder to my waves now!

    Now: hair up in a messy morning bun. I didn't get all of the oil out in my wash on Sunday morning so my ends are a bit shiny. They'll survive until the next one (and may even thank me for it!
